Series: I Survived True Stories (Book #2)
by Lauren Tarshis

Gripping true stories of real kids who have survived horrifying disasters from the author of The New York Times-bestselling I Survived series!

From 14-year-old Joseph Dunn who was the lone survivor of the Shark Attacks of 1916, to 9-year-old Mike Kramer who, with the help of his quick-thinking parents, survived the Peshtigo fire of 1871 (which took place on the very same day in history as the Great Chicago Fire!), to the 13-year-old girl who survived a terrifying attack by a box jellyfish, this is a collection of unforgettable narrative non-fiction stories of unimaginable destruction — and, against all odds, survival.
